The tour was well organized, we did not feel rushed at any time, the captain made sure we could find and swim with dolphins while other boats could not find any. The photographer was amazing and took great pics. Book with them for sure!! Nikky or "sharky" was also great!!

This was my first trip to Hawaii and first time snorkeling. The crew was very knowledgeable and accommodating. My husband woke up ill the day of the excursion and Dolphin rescheduled him to another day. I will make snorkeling with Dolphin a must do whenever I am Hawaii and would recommend to my friends.

The tour guides were awesome and found two sets of dolphins for us to swim with. We also had a family of sea turtles visit our tour and swim underneath us. This was an amazing experience!

Took three dives: one for dolphins, one for turtles, and one for snorkeling the reef with tropical fish. This excursion is better for good swimmers and more adventurous people; dive right... More

A fantastic morning out on the Pacific Ocean with a great crew of nature loving people. We swam with dolphins, snorkelled for a long time and then were taken to a 'secret' location to visit the resident green sea turtles. Then back to the marina for a well earned, and complimentary lunch - great idea as everyone was starving!! Thanks... More

We did several activities in Oahu and this is definitely in the top five! The staff was amazing. We were picked up in Waikiki from our hotel (included) and brought to the marina where we were given snorkel gear and a life jacket to use during the adventure. There was a guide available specifically for the Japanese speaking guests which... More

One of the coolest experiences of my life. Saw and Swam with spinner dolphins about three minutes into the trip. A close encounter with a sea turtle, saw octopi and bottlenose dolphins. Staff and photographer were top notch, knowledgeable and respectful of the environment and animals. Worth every penny!
